I love watching our two children play together! Addie loves James SO much (sometimes a little too much in his opinion!). You can tell he enjoys her company and she loves having a permanent playmate around 24/7. :)

On Saturday, October 22nd, Addie fell out of her booster seat and broke her arm. She was reaching for another cinnamon roll (that would have made 3) and slipped in her footed pjs. She then went into shock and I called Stef to come home (he was at church). We brought her to urgent care around 9am. After x-rays and an exam, they decided it was bad enough for surgery. They called around to several hospitals before deciding Gillette Children's Hospital. We ran home for 5 minutes, grab clean clothes and Addie's blankie, and headed to St. Paul! The afternoon was filled with books, movies, nurse check-ins and lots of Addie time. At 4, they wheeled her down to the OR recovery room. We meet the two on-call nurses (which she LOVED). They treated her like a princess! She had balloons, lipstick, stuffed animals, stickers, you name it. Her surgery lasted 45 minutes and at 5pm, she was out and waking up. It was a rough wake-up. She was pretty crabby (fairly normal). But lots of cheerios, juice, Popsicles and graham crackers, and she was ready to leave by 6:30. In bed around 9:30pm, and exhausted! Not the way we planned our weekend, but praise God everything went smoothly and the doc said it should heal just fine!!! Such a blessing, Nana and Papa arrived the next day for Addie's birthday. They were able to "hang-out" all week long with the kids and recover!! She gets her cast off next week!!

Skype time with Uncle Dan.
MOA Aquarium. We had found online coupons, so were able to go all four of us for a great price. We had such a fun time. Addie loved looking at the stingrays with daddy the best. The jellyfish exhibit was amazing. They had all the lights turned off and the tanks had a neon light in them, turning the jellyfish fun neon colors. When we got into the tunnel walk, Addie wasn't sure what to make of the entire thing. I have to admit, it was pretty intense. Sharks were EVERYWHERE!!! It took her a bit to realize that the glass was protecting us, and they weren't going to eat her. She kept saying that the Nemo sharks were our friends! :)
sheet rock. Our ceiling guy then came back over and made the patch look spectacular. You'd never even be able to tell we had 3 huge cracks in the ceiling.
slurped it up instantly.
pjs ON!" She also didn't like the idea of eating breakfast somewhere else. Once we got to Susie's she would get teary eyed for the first couple minutes, and by the time I came in the afternoon to pick her up, she didn't want to leave. :)
pjs for the rest of the church service. We were blessed to have most of our family there with us to celebrate. Both Nana and Papa were there, along with Grandma and Grandpa, Uncle Dan, Uncle Matt, Auntie Julie and Uncle Jim. It was an amazing morning.
